Abstract:
Among all the agronomical factors, sowing and nitrogen management are the most critical factors for enhancing the growth and yield of any crop. Wheat (Triticum aestivum L) is the first essential and strategic cereal crop for most of the world’s populations. Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was planted for two consecutive seasons (2017-18 and 2018-19) in the Semi-arid Land of Agronomical research farm, Acharya Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Ayodhya, India. The experiment was obtained in split-plot design and comprised of four sowing methods broadcasting method (Bm), line sowing method (Lm), Furrow Irrigation Ridge Bed (FIRB) and Crisscross (20× 20 cm) (Cc), and five nitrogen managements treatments viz., (N1) Control, (N2) 50% N as basal + 25% N after first irrigation + 25% N after second irrigation, (N3) 50% N as basal + 50% N after first irrigation, (N4) 25% N as basal + 25% N after second irrigation + 50% through FYM as basal, (N5) 25% N as basal + 75% through FYM as basal was laid out with three replication on crop growth, seed yield, yield components. Statistical analysis of the obtained data presented that the FIRB and N2 dominated other treatments for plant growth, yield and another component. Current results suggested that the FIRB sowing method and N2 can be adopted as the best treatments for wheat cultivation under semi-arid land conditions of India.
